Synopsis new

Bad boy Kaidan Rowe has never wanted for anything—money, popularity, musical talent…hot girls—but seducing them is part of his duty as a Nephilim, slave to the demon Dukes. As the son of the Duke of Lust, Kaidan has learned his father’s ways, becoming a master of passion, a manipulator of chemistry. Disobeying his father would mean certain death. Thankfully for Kaidan, he’s good at his job. And he enjoys it.

Until he meets Anna Whitt—smart, feisty, and inexplicably good—the one girl seemingly immune to his charms. The daughter of a guardian angel and a fallen one, she makes him wish for more than he could ever deserve.

Determined to save all the Neph from their dark lives, Anna joins forces with Kaidan to overcome the Dukes’ oppressive ways. In the light of her affections, Kaidan must undergo his toughest test of all, a battle of the heart.

Sensual and swoonworthy, this companion volume to the Sweet Evil series, told from the perspective of the mysterious Kaidan Rowe, gives readers revealing insights into the true emotions that drive him.

(Buddyreading this book with my sissy Avy)

Reading this book was reminiscing everything in Sweet series and bringing back the feels! I am not really fond of reading a book that rehashes the entire series using the voice of the male mc but this one was an exception because, *sigh It’s KAIDAN ROWE’S POV and why not?

I knew Kaidan was sexy in Sweet Evil, Sweet Peril, and Sweet Reckoning but I think he’s way sexier here. Lots of naughty things were running inside his head and I can’t help but blush. LOL. I think I even loved him better here because I was able to really see through his thoughts and his emotions and the way he regarded Anna. Right in the feels!

“Anna has ruined me with a craving for something far more substantial. She possesses the only thing that can fill the deep void within me, and nothing else comes close.”

Anna and Kaidan have always been one of my favorite OTP’s that’s why it was kind of difficult for me to read this book without missing this couple so bad! But I’m really glad because I already forgot lots of scenes in the series and I’m happy to rewind all of those, especially those scenes I consider my favorites. All in all, it was a worthy somewhat-reread of the entire series. Kaidan Rowe is truly worth it all!

“I can’t simply have a tiny slice of Anna. I’m no masochist. It has to be all or nothing.”

Embrace the Forbidden

What if there were teens whose lives literally depended on being bad influences?

This is the reality for sons and daughters of fallen angels.
Tenderhearted Southern girl Anna Whitt was born with the sixth sense to see and feel emotions of other people. She’s aware of a struggle within herself, an inexplicable pull toward danger, but it isn’t until she turns sixteen and meets the alluring Kaidan Rowe that she discovers her terrifying heritage and her willpower is put to the test. He’s the boy your daddy warned you about. If only someone had warned Anna.

Forced to face her destiny, will Anna embrace her halo or her horns?

MY THOUGHTS…

“I was in love with him. And there wasn’t a thing on earth, in heaven, or in hell that could have stopped me.”

Can I start this review by saying that I’m totally fangirling right now? I love it so much! And I therefore conclude that Kaidan Rowe is my new book boyfriend!

Oh my God.. It’s so hard to think of better words to describe my feelings for this book. First off, I really had high expectations with it since it has high ratings here in GR. Guess what? It actually exceeded my expectations. I was completely blown away!

I love the premise and how Ms. Wendy Higgins created such a brilliant and challenging spiritual concept about angels and demons. What struck me most was how the author also pointed some Biblical views on it. I love her ideas and how she thoroughly made a good research about the fallen angels and other creations. Isn’t she perfect?

What’s even great about this book is its unpredictability. The plot of this book surprises me a lot. It’s intense! Ms. Higgins’ writing style is really hands down beautiful!

Another thing that I particularly love about this book is the characters. Kaidan Rowe! Omg! Can you please stop being HOTT?! I love the bad-boy image of this guy. The one who is totally capable of giving me the feels. And Anna Whitt– well, I really love her character. She’s not an annoying, angsty lead like other YA female characters. Her sweetness and kindness definitely win my heart I could hug her! Apart from Kaidan and Anna, I also love the other Neph– Kope, Marna, Ginger, and Blake. They’re badass characters!

As a whole, this book is phenomenal. I highly recommend this one to every YA fan who loves Nephilim stories. P.S. I’m still in a book hangover right now. Couldn’t stop thinking about this book. Need to move on to the second!
